The Cause Of Children Aged 1 Year Is Still Fussy After A Fever?
I want to ask, my nephew is having a fever … r nbut alhmdllh the heat has gone down a little but until now it’s still fussy ..
Hello Ade, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first describe:
Since when does your niece have a fever? What is your niece's fever pattern? Are there other symptoms that accompany, for example a cold cough, diarrhea, vomiting, fluid in the ear, urinary disorders, etc.? Are there certain medications that have been given? Fever in children can be caused by various things. In general the causes can be divided into causes of infection and non-infection. Infection is the most common cause of fever in children. Infection itself can occur in various organs, for example in the respiratory tract, in the digestive tract, ears, skin, urinary tract, brain and lining of the brain, or non-specific infections (such as rubella, dengue fever, roseola, etc.). Non-infectious causes include autoimmune diseases, drug side effects, cancer, etc.
Basically a sick child can indeed be more fussy. Just like adults who feel unwell when sick, children can also feel it. Because a 1-year-old baby cannot express his complaints in words, discomfort is expressed by crying and being fussy. You should clarify in advance about the fever experienced by your niece. If indeed you do not know clearly the cause of the fever, it is better your nephew's condition to be consulted directly to the pediatrician.
Some things you can do to help relieve your niece's discomfort:
Give a fever medicine if the fever is high (> 38.5 degrees Celsius) Give a drink in more quantities Do not wrap the child in clothes that are too thick, and set the temperature of the room to be comfortable enough for the child Turn the child's attention to other things he likes, for example invite to play or a short walk out of the house Let the child rest and sleep longer Give a nutritious meal that is complete, but do not be forced if the child is not willing to eat. This condition is very normal in children who are sick.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
